Unblogged Favourites, Part one
These are some of my favourite series, read long before I started my blog-
Noughts and Crosses series by Malorie Blackman (Goodreads)
I loved these books so much. They are so clever and so powerfully emotional. This is a love story like no other. I have vivid memories of sobbing my heart out at certain scenes, taking the book into the bath with me to read, and wanting to keep reading and reading, even though I was getting cold and wrinkly!
These books are amazing! Looking at this book on Amazon, out of 341 ratings, 295 of them are 5 star. What does that tell you!
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Goodreads)
This series exceeded all my expectations of it and just blew me away. WOW! The first book especially is just amazing. I've even got work colleagues who normally hate YA books reading it and raving about it and recommending it to all their friends. This is full of action, tragedy, and yet hope and love- set in a scary dystopian world. So, so good. I love these books. The movie is out next week and I cannot wait!
Choas Walking series by Patrick Ness (Goodreads)
This was so moving- such a desperate quest to replace a corrupt government, and a slow-building love story that was so incredibly sweet.
Imagine a world where you can hear everyone else's thoughts all the time- even animals, and being constantly surrounded by noise. Todd and Viola find themselves caught up in a war when Viola's spaceship crash lands near Todd's village. This was very different from anything else I've ever read, but so powerful and such an amazing action-packed adventure.
More of my favourites next week!
